I hope everyone had a great time in Pella at this year's Super Launch. Sorry I wasn't able to make it - in addition to all the work stuff, I spent a good chunk of today buying and installing a new dryer after our 12-year-old one crapped out yesterday. I would much rather have been chasing balloons.
The College World Series is scheduled for June 12-24 in Omaha. This event books up hotel rooms throughout the metro, even extending to Fremont and Lincoln. The hotel rates will usually run double the normal through those dates, and they're difficult to find even at the inflated prices.
Earlier I threw out June 6 as a possible weekend, but after reviewing my own calendar I think this would be hard for me to do, as I'll be out of town attending graduations up until the Monday before.
I am thinking instead of June 25-27 or July 9-11. Keep in mind that by July 9th the corn will probably be 6 ft or taller, and will be even taller yet as we go deeper in July. In late June is more like waist to shoulder high.
Some ideas for a Thursday event:
If you have any thoughts on the dates or Thursday events, feel free to send them on or off-list. Looking forward to seeing you next summer.
